I love it :) It's a lot more 'butch' than the MX5, pleased they interior is basically the same, it's actually a REALLY nice place to be. Let's not forget, this is the Fiat version, the Abarth should be a lot more aggressive in styling.











I love it in all those pictures! the back lights, the bulges on the bonnet, the front grill all look great.

but on the blue one I aint keen on ..side looks plain.
Now with added monza fun :P

    I am the same, the studio shots look a little 'bland'. Certain colours suit different cars, I'm not sure the blue there suits it but I believe that is for a limited launch edition, looks mighty similar to the fiat 500 in this colour:

    yea I think the blue makes the back quarter panel look too high/plain?

    the tan seats on blue look great but on the picture blue doesnt work.

    I say good job fiat...maby could of doe abit more to the side..it doesn't seem to be a sport variant buti guess theyl leave that to later on just leave the sport side of things to abarth.

    cant wait to see this in the flesh and if the fiat version looks like this then bring on the abarth :D

    Can't say I'd have this over the MX-5 looks wise, to me it looks exceptionally ugly, an abarth version would be different though.

    I can see where the styling comes from, definitely DODGE.....  My example here, ha ha....
    I'm a Dodge Viper Fan Boy so it's nice to see a much more masculine looking car in the 124, but still love the MX-5.

    The white does look fantastic in this formal shot :)

    And this is the FIAT version, the Abarth one I hope will look completely INSANE :)



    Longer nose, more aggressive bumper and kit in general....... should be a great looking car, it's a great start for what is basically a standard Fiat.

    Definitely wait for the Abarth version for me...

    My question is - why the hell does the EU spec only get 140hp?? Even though it is using the Multiair as well.

    I really don't understand. That likely means that we'll get the 140hp spec in AU as well.

    Because if it had 200bhp then the "Abarth engineers" will need to extract even more to make it a competitive product thus creating significant cost, reliability, engine choice and type approval issues and more than likely price its self out of what is already a reasonably neiche market...

    I'm talking about the differences between the US spec and EU spec 124 - the US gets 160hp, EU gets 140hp?? But they're both Multiair engines. Very weird.

    I am sure it is to do with bigger longer roads, Europe in comparison is filled with twisty short roads.
    We concentrate more on handling, they tend to concentrate more on straight line power.
